Fetch.ai and the IOTA Foundation collaborate to offer autonomous economic agents on the Tangle
Fetch.ai and the IOTA Foundation joined forces in order to offer autonomous economic agents (AEAs) on the Tangle. The Tangle is available as a reliable and production-ready base layer for a whole range of industrial partners.One of these partners is Fetch.ai, a Cambridge-based artificial intelligence (AI) lab that uses autonomous economic agents to process various information via AI-based applications for smart and innovative data solutions.
IOTA-ENSURESEC: How to make an impact in the e-commerce ecosystem
As part of the H2020 ENSURESEC Project, a EU-funded innovation activity to strengthen the security of the e-commerce ecosystem, the IOTA Foundation and its partners have just reached the project’s second milestone. To measure the potential impact of our work, we reached out to a community of experts with an impact survey. The survey aimed to understand the viability of our solutions and their relevance for the e-commerce ecosystem, by collecting opinions from experts not directly connected to the ENSURESEC project
IOTA Native Digital Assets – DevNet Version
In June we released our Digital Assets framework on the DevNet. It was finally time to tokenize, to NFT, and to have fun sending around magical decentralized internet tokens. We built a new wallet for the IOTA 2.0 DevNet to empower our community to start experimenting with digital assets. For developers, you can find the documentation here.
IOTA 2.0 Research Specifications
We released our IOTA 2.0 research specifications. Their purpose is to carefully explain the current state of the IOTA 2.0 protocol to developers, both internal and external, who wish to build on or test Nectar, to academics who want to analyze, model and optimize the protocol and need rigorous description of each module, and to community members and anybody who just want to learn more about the protocol
Fully decentralised IOTA 2.0 explained in under 3 minutes
While IOTA 2.0 is a complex protocol with various modules, its core idea is actually quite simple. This post summarizes how IOTA 2.0 achieves consensus and maintains the ledger.
